Acute Ear pain with burning sensation

Dear Doctor,

My sister has been suffering with acute ear pain for a while. It all started when she started complaining of an ear pain, which she thought could be as a result of water accidentally entering into her ear while showering, about 2 weeks back. The pain became quite unbearable and continued for a couple of days. She had to go to a Doctor who diagnosed the pain to be due to formation of wax in her ear. The wax was subsequently removed using the Vacuuming process a week back. She still was experiencing pain and went back to the same Doctor. The Doctor mentioned that her ear is clear of infection and that there was no more wax inside. He prescribed pain killers. She has been taking pain killers for 3-4 days now. However, she still has acute pain more often when she hears high frequency sounds especially when the phone rings, or due to the screeching sound of a chair or some steel utensils. The pain lingers for a while then. Some days go by when she does not have any pain at all. She is taking all precautions she can - not allowing water any where near her ear, covering her ears with cotton etc. I am unable to see her in pain. Her Doctor says he does not know what is causing the pain since the wax is already gone. Please advise what we can do to alleviate her situation. We are very worried about her.

Thanks a lot.

this is not the expert form
but it could be a result of an ear pressure imbalance in the ears
i advise, if possible, that you see and ENT specialist
a good one should be able to help you.
